Match: Bayern Munich vs PSG
League: Champions League Final 2019/20
Date: Sunday, 23 August 2020
Kick-off: 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estádio da Luz
The Bavarians seem unstoppable right now. Led by the genius Hans-Dieter Flick, the Germans have become a giant who has led many of the best teams this season, in both national and continental competitions.
For now, they are just 90 minutes away from completing a famous hat-trick, a feat that would seemed impossible earlier in the season, when the Germans were under Niko Kovac’s tutelage.
Another German player will stand in their way, in the form of Thomal Tuchel, sitting in the canoes of the Parisians.
The French contingent may be lacking in their midfield and defense, but they overcompensated with perhaps the best front line in the world at the moment.
The combination of Neymar Jr’s style, Kylian Mbappé’s pace, Angel Di Maria’s deception and Mauro Icardi’s aerial prowess was simply too much for any team.
And it’s no wonder they’re about to complete a quad.
However, when it comes to the outcome of this European showdown, the Bavarians seem the favorites as they have an entire squad guided by the tactical genius that is Flick, as opposed to the plethora of individual talent that the Parisians have, who ultimately instance they do not have the same cohesion.
Bayern Munich vs PSG: head to head (H2H)
- These two had closed their horns in the group stage of the CL 2017-18. Then the Ligue 1
- hampions won 3-0 at home, while their counterpart won 3-1 at the Allianz Arena.
- The previous clashes date back almost 20 years. The France team dominated these matches, having won four of those six matches.
- Four of the eight total meetings had three or more goals.
- Of the eight meetings between the two, seven have been won by local teams.
Bayern Munich vs PSG: Prediction
The Germans have an impressive 21-game winning streak and have also won 28 of their last 30 matches.
They have shown no mercy to any opponents en route to their possible hat-trick, and with the titans of European football going through a transitional period, Flick’s men have a chance to reign at the top unopposed for at least the next few years. . years.
And it is important that they win the CL for that to happen.
Compared to Tuchel’s men, where Bundesliga winners are at the top, there is the fact that they focus more on dominance as a unit, rather than Neymar Jr.’s moments of individual brilliance.
And as we saw before, Barça, who relied too much on Leo Messi to get him out of difficult places, was completely demolished in their quarter-final match.
In addition, it seems Mbappé, Neymar, etc. I’ve wasted in front of goal lately, and with Manuel Neuer in front of goal you need to be at your best to insert at least one ball.
And the back-to-back pace of the Bayern Munich line-up would act like a good against the terrifying wingers of the Ligue 1 champions.
Plus, with Robert Lewandowski possibly enjoying the best season of his career, it shouldn’t be too difficult to score one or two against Tuchel’s substitute goalkeeper, as Keylor Navas has been ruled out due to injury.

It’s also worth noting that Lewa has a chance to tie the best goal campaign of any player in a single CL season, with just two more goals. We can count on him to give everything to achieve this record.
Although the French contingent made it to the final, it must be a bit worrying that they had an easy road here. In fact, Flick’s men would be the first major team they should faced all season.
As such, Bayern Munich expected to complete a famous hat-trick this Sunday at Estádio da Luz.
However, in terms of goals, we have to understand that the Parisians invested money in their project for the sole purpose of winning the European crown, and that they are also only 90 minutes away.
They would also be desperate for fame, and it would be an absolute farce if football’s front row failed to score at least once.
Also, with the high defensive line the Bavarians are using, it believed that Tuchel’s men should find the target at least once this weekend.
- Bayern Munich at 1.50 (1/2)
- Both teams score at 1.40 (2/5).
